Description: Experience the best cuisine that Turkey has to offer at Anatoli. Be greeted warmly by attentive staff and seated in an intriguing Victorian warehouse, built in 1904. Anatoli has been serving the best Turkish food in Cape Town since 1984 and this wealth of experience and success is well reflected in the offerings on the extensive and well-planned menu. Freshly baked flat breads accompany traditional meze, presented in equally traditional oversized trays. The knowledgeable waiters will enthusiastically take diners through all of the meze available. There is something to suit every palate at Anatoli due to the variety that characterises Turkish cuisine. Experience a memorable culinary journey through Turkey care of Anatoli at Green Point.

Six of us dined here recently having last been there some 30 years ago. The atmosphere is very Turkish as is the offering of mezze choices, although we would have likes a few more hot options. The bread is excellent and the main dishes tasty. Some of the ladies found the seats to be a bit low but the backrest cushions came in handy. It is amazing that very little seems to have changed over the years and that one can still enjoy an authentic Turkish meal in cape Town.

If you are looking for something that makes you feel like you're really in Turkey, look no further. Anatoli is definitely the place for you. The atmosphere and decor is authentic and leave you with a passion to go back to Istanbul and Turkey. The food is excellent and covers a wide range. The service was excellent and our waiter’s timing between the different dishes were extremely professional. So was his explanation of all the choices and options. For me the test of a good restaurant is it’s house wine. Is it something out of a box or is it the real deal? Anatoli pass this test with flying colours! Fantastic food, great atmosphere and professional and superb service ... what more can you ask? I have not even received this type of service in Turkey! Don't miss out on this unique experience and brilliant restaurant!

We loved the starter selection platter so much that we ate from it again for mains! Had a very interactive 'finger' dinner with friends.

It was a visit which was long overdue. We have lived in Cape Town for over 8 years and the restaurant has been in existence for 26 years.

The enormous meze tray all of which looked amazing, provided a challenge for decision making for our dinner party.

The decor reminded us of a bygone era. The collection of interesting pieces stimulated us to read more about the Ottoman Empire and modern day Turkey.

If you are considering dining out, think you further, you will not be disappointed.
